Cook is one of Kirby's one-use Copy Abilities.

General Information

Like other one-use abilities like Crash and Paint, this ability takes out all enemies on screen; however, unlike Crash and Paint, Cook cannot harm undefeated mid-bosses. Its first appearance is in Kirby Super Star.

When used, Kirby dons a chef's hat and summons a pot in which every regular enemy, enemy projectile, defeated mid-boss and star on-screen is pulled in. He then cooks them all, and then magically turns them all into delicious food which Kirby can eat for replenishing health. This ability can be obtained by eating the mid-boss Chef Kawasaki after he is defeated. In Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, he can obtain the ability from either Cookin' or, on rare occasions, Prank.

Cook Kirby's frying pan is also seen in Bomb Rally, a sub-game in Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. It serves a similar purpose from the anime. (i.e. knocking projectiles away.) However, this may not be truly considered a use of the ability.

When Kirby uses the ability, all enemies on the screen are sucked into the pot, and Kirby bangs his utensils together (a frying pan and a spatula) twice, stirs the pot, and food pops out the top. Defeated mid-bosses will produce two foodstuffs.

Move Set

Move Controls Description Element
Cook Pot B All enemies and mid-bosses (that are defeated) on-screen are sucked into Kirby's pot, cooked, and then transformed into food Kirby can use to replenish his health (this move does not work on bosses). None

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Cook is changed into a full-fledged ability with a variety of uses in this version. It's typically acquired from inhaling Kawasaki's frying pan, though other kitchen utensils have often been substituted in lieu of the frying pan not being available for some reason or another.

In the transformation sequence, Kirby spins and forms his hat. Then a frying pan appears from off-screen and flies into Kirby's face, slamming him in the process. Kirby then removes the pan, holds it, and poses dramatically. Cook Kirby's main weapon is a frying pan with many different uses. Often he uses it as a shield, reflecting attacks. However, he can cause it to grow to massive size and use it to fry or boil large enemies. He can also cause any kind of food to spontaneously appear from it.

Cook Kirby in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Kirby uses the Cook ability as his Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where its function is largely unchanged from the games, with the exception that everything nearby (items and players, including characters that come out of Assist Trophies and Pokeballs) is sucked into the pot and cooked. After a while, the players and various items are shot out. While powerful (about 24% damage), it has the potential drawback of allowing those hit by the attack to use the items that come out with them. The number of Items produced is about the same number of items put into the pot. In order to counter this the user's best bet is to Inhale as many items as quickly as possible in order to prevent opponents from using them. Kirby's Final Smash can be dodged by using timed movements with invincibility, such as sidesteps and rolls.

The more damage enemies have the harder it is to avoid (i.e. If Kirby uses the Final Smash against an opponent with 200% damage, he/she will be sucked into the pot easier and from a farther distance). It can also suck in enemies through impassable walls, floors, stairs, etc. Players using the Final Smash often find it useful to jump high into the air, then clang the utensils to pull in opponents in a much wider area around them.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, the Cook Final Smash was replaced with one based off of the Ultra Sword Super Ability that appeared in Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Cook Kirby gets a trophy as do all the Final Smash attacks. Also, it appears as a sticker using its design from Kirby Super Star. The pot has a fork and spoon on it, which it did not have in prior appearances.

When Kirby needs an energy boost, cook up some "gourmet enemy soup." Cook is a one course meal.

Kirby in chef's garb. When Kirby throws on his chef's hat, a giant pot appears in the center of the screen. All characters, items, and even long-distance weapons are sucked into the pot. Once they've simmered a bit, food items equal to the number of things in the pot appear. Characters in the mix get blasted straight up out of the pot.
